Top 10 Tuesday — Series I Really Love, but Hate That I Haven’t Finished!

15 May

Because we always want to keep it positive here at By The Book, I chose to tweak the theme of this week’s Top 10 Tuesday (yet again, LOL!). So instead of highlighting books I hated, I am featuring the series I loved, but haven’t finished yet. In most cases I lack only 1 book to check the completed box. How in the world can I NOT finish a series, especially when the last book waits impatiently on my shelf? Here’s my rationalization: books in a series are usually released once a year. There are so many shiny books that come out between the installments that I just can’t resist, hence leaving very deserving books languishing. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Update: This post shamed me into action! I am currently reading A Will, A Way, And A Wedding by Melody Carlson. I’ll be able to check this one off in a few days.

What about you? Have you ever left a series you absolutely love unfinished? What’s your reason?

Be sure to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl where, hopefully, other bloggers are sharing the love not the hate! 😉

    I’m with you! I like to read them all at once but waiting is soooo hard. I’ve got a lot of unfinished series. Among them are Lynette Eason’s Waiting series. I have one Sarah Sundin series I need to finish although I have started her new one already! Shame on me! There are just too many new good books out there! And one series I thought I had read all the books but discovered I missed one!! Happy Reading!

    Omigoodness, for a moment there (at the “hate” word) you gave this author of “medical hope opera” a run of atrial fibrillation! 😉 Honored to be on this list, and hope summer rewards you with some wonderful reads.

    Didn’t worry when I saw this heading, since I don’t write series (although you never know–I have this idea…). Thanks for ‘fessing up, Beckie.

      And there are more that I didn’t list — hangs head in shame! A few weeks from now TTT wants us to list books we DNF. I’ll have to do a 2nd part.

    I love your spin on the topic! This week’s TTT posts are kind of sad and negative. I hope you get a chance to finish these series!
